FOREWORD It’s always nice to see people like yourself looking for ways to be healthier. We have prepared the following acid-alkaline foods chart and supporting alkalizing recipes to serve as a guide for those who want to balance their body pH.

Hello, my name is David Whelan, and I founded pHion 5 years ago as a result of my own personal success with living a pH balanced lifestyle. We’re now the leader in body pH balance because we offer the most effective products that are affordable, easy to use, and always deliver lasting results. Let us help you achieve a state of pH balance and extraordinary health.

When you properly manage the delicate balance between acidic and alkaline elements in your body you’ll find that many of your “health problems” will vanish. Acidification in the body comes as a result or THREE primary things: 1. Eating too many acidifying foods, which create an acid ash in your body. This is where proper diet comes in. By eating a diet of 80% alkalizing foods, you’ll eliminate the production of excess acid in your body. 2. Microforms like bacteria, yeasts and fungi create acidic toxins in your body. Not only do they “show-up” in an acidic body, they also pollute and further acidify your body. For this reason, it is important to cleanse & detoxify your body in order to jumpstart the process of balancing your pH. 3. Being depleted of the necessary alkaline buffers such as minerals that neutralize acids, and ions that help to conduct energy and regulate fluid pH. By increasing your intake of alkaline supplements and alkaline, ionic water you will replenish your body’s capacity to neutralize excess acids. We have prepared this guide to give pHion customers a listing of foods that are both alkalizing and acidic in nature. It is our wish that you'll find ways to integrate more healthy alkalizing foods and water into your diet, and free yourself from the kinds of acidic foods that overly tax your body. We believe that when you see and feel the results you’re looking for, maintaining an alkaline lifestyle will be a pleasure. 


Balance

We have also included over 45 alkalizing recipes that are not only delicious but rather easy to prepare. Even by simply adding one alkalizing meal to your daily diet, you'll begin to notice a difference in your general health and overall wellness.

My name is Christopher Vasey, N.D. For over 20 years, I have taught the simple, yet life-changing concept of "pH Balance" to hundreds of thousands of people all around the world. These ideas have propelled many to a total transformation in their overall health and happiness. pHion products have been an integral part of those transformations. I invite you to discover pH balance the pHion way.

Hundreds of thousands of people have solved their own health puzzle by implementing the information found in this guide and we hope the same goes for you! Visit us anytime at www.phionbalance.com to discover more about pH and your health.

ACID - ALKALINE FOODS OVERVIEW As way of background, a pH of 7.0 is neutral, below 7.0 is acidic and above 7.0 is alkaline. The word pH stands for “the Potential of Hydrogen”. The more hydrogen ions in a liquid such as human blood, the more acidic it is – and vice versa. Your body works to maintain the pH of the blood in a slightly alkaline range (7.3 – 7.4). If it moved below or above this range, you wouldn’t be alive. In order to keep your blood alkaline, your body has a very efficient system of buffering or neutralizing acids that build up in the fluids of your body (in and around your cells) so that they can enter your bloodstream without harming you. This buffering process involves combining the alkaline minerals that are present in the watery fluids of your body (intracellular fluid, extracellular fluid, lymph fluid) with the acids in order to make a neutral "salt". For example: when phosphoric acid is buffered with the alkaline mineral calcium, a pH neutral salt called calcium phosphate is created. This element can safely enter the bloodstream without altering the pH of your blood. When your body's buffering system isn't working properly, it will attempt to keep excess acids away from your blood by reverting to less optimal tactics. The first tactic is to steal alkaline minerals out of your bones or muscles (calcium, magnesium) to buffer or neutralize these acids. The second tactic is to simply store them deep into your tissues. If you’ve ever wondered how somebody could get gout (uric acid) in their toe… this is how. This is the process of how your body becomes too acidic - by virtue of acids building up in the tissues and fluids of your body. Keep in mind that these excess acids damage all of the cells that they come in contact with. While these secondary tactics serve to keep your body functioning in the short term by protecting your blood pH, they are by no means optimal in the long term. To put this into something that we all can relate to, solving the pH balancing puzzle is really no different than balancing a banking account.  PAGE

Simply put, you must keep your alkaline deposits ahead of your acid withdrawals. When you don’t, your body goes into debt by stealing minerals, storing acids into fatty tissues, slowing metabolism down, etc. This in turn creates deficits which result in poor energy, fatigue, incomplete digestion, weight gain, arthritis, osteoporoses, and a whole lot more. The good news though, is that the opposite is effect is also true. When you keep the acids under control and the alkaline deposits up, your body will prosper… and you’ll SEE and FEEL it!

Acids are primarily created in your body when you consume acid forming foods. But they also can build as a result of physical or emotional stress, toxic overload, immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and nutrients. As already stated, your body is equipped with the systems that can neutralize these acids, but they slow down with age. You must also supply the raw materials for those systems to work – namely alkaline minerals, alkaline water and ions with negative charges (also known as electrolytes). All of these elements can be supplied with the right diet, alkaline forming supplements and alkaline drinking water.  While eating a healthy alkaline based diet plays a fundamental role in the process of pH balancing, there are a few things you can do to boost your

The reason acidosis is so common in our society is mostly due to the typical modern diet, which is far too high in acid forming animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline forming foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we consume too many acid producing foods like white flour, processed sugar, packaged and pasteurized foods, coffee, soft drinks and artificial chemical sweeteners. Generally, alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, green vegetables, beans & legumes, seeds & nuts, oils, herbs & seasonings and mineralized water. Acid forming foods include: meat, dairy products, eggs, packaged and processed foods.

One of the best things you can do to correct an overly acid body is to clean up your diet and lifestyle.

Tip!

To maintain health, your diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid forming foods. To restore your health, your diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods.

We have prepared the following "Alkalizing" and "Acidifying" foods chart to be used as an everyday guide while on your pH balancing journey. You will see there are 3-hole punch guides along the left border of the pages; we recommend printing this document out, hole-punching, inserting into a binder and taking it along with you on your grocery shopping days. We also want to mention that while some can get rather dogmatic with lists like these, keep in mind that you are not going to suddenly become too acidic because you ate a piece of bacon or because you drank a cup of coffee. Nor will you dig yourself out of an acidic state because you had a shot of wheatgrass juice. Acidification is a cumulative process, and it occurs as a result of your lifestyle of eating. Getting back to an alkaline state is the same‌ just in reverse. PAGE 03

While fruits are slightly alkalizing to a person who is already in a balanced state, we suggest refraining from them all together if you are in an acidic state because of their high sugar content. Once you get your pH back up to the desired level, enjoy them in moderation.

Tip!

Also, fruits can contain organic, weak acids that are easy to buffer when you are in a balanced state. They are alkaline forming because of the other elements in them. If your pH is low, refrain from them if the weak acids bother you. Once you get your pH back up to the optimal zone, enjoy them. We’ve labeled the column on the right “Acid But Alkaline Forming” and have included these fruits.

While sodium is an alkaline mineral, too much of it pulls water out of cells into the fluid that surrounds cells. This is why you would die if you drank too much sea water. We recommend a low sodium diet on order to maintain proper cell hydration.

Use saran wrap to wrap over the bowl and refrigerate for at least a half an hour or up to one day. Heat a small nonstick crepe pan or skillet over medium-low heat. Gently stir batter to blend again. Once the pan is hot, drop 2 Tbs. of crepe batter into the skillet. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom evenly with the batter. If the batter does not swirl easily you must add a little water to thin it down a bit. Cook for about a minute or two or until the top appears dry. Use a spatula to gently flip the crepe. Cook for about a minute or two longer or until the bottom appears lightly browned and the crepe slides easily in the pan. Move the crepe onto a plate or paper towel. Once made, these crepes may be refrigerated or frozen for later use.

pHoin Inigo, Antioxidants Fights Damaging Free Radicals, Neutralizes Degeneration and Aging. Every day, your cells, your tissues, and your organs are under attack by free radicals. In fact, it’s been estimated that your DNA sustains one million lesions every 24 hours. Since scientists have discovered this fact, antioxidant supplements - which neutralize free radicals - have become very popular. But what many people don’t understand is that there are literally hundreds of different types of free radicals, and hundreds of different types of antioxidants. Antioxidants work like keys in locks: one type of antioxidant will work beautifully against one type of free radical, but it’s useless against another type. That means your best defense against free radicals is to have a wide range of antioxidants. And that’s exactly what you’ll get with pHion Indigo, our super antioxidant complex.

Advantages Different antioxidants for different free radicals. pHion Indigo contains 14 different kinds of powerful antioxidants, so it can fight multiple kinds of free radicals. Superfruit blend. pHion Indigo includes concentrates of some of nature’s most powerful antioxidant superfruits - such as goji, mangosteen, pomegranate, and berries - without the fruit sugar. Botanical blend. We’ve also included all the botanical antioxidant superstars - like pine bark, grape seed extract, bilberry, and green tea - in pHion Indigo. Vitamin and mineral blend. Finally, pHion Indigo features a range of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, zinc, manganese, copper, and selenium. Super strong antioxidant power. A daily dose of pHion Indigo has a certified ORAC* rating (a scientific measure of antioxidant strength) of 8,000 units. That’s equivalent to more than four pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables!

pHion pH Booster , Alkaline Water Supplement TM

Ionize, Alkalize and Electrify your water! Water can be either: alkaline or acidic, ionized or mineral - depleted, and oxygen-rich or oxygen-poor. Great water has the following four key characteristics; it’s pure, it’s alkaline, it’s oxygenated, and it contains a lot of quality minerals. With a little help from pH Booster, you can turn ordinary water into an alkaline, ionized, oxygenated super health tonic! One of the easiest and most effective ways to boost your pH is to drink structured alkaline water with a p H of 9.5. Water like this helps flush out all those harmful acids your diet and your system are constantly producing. pH Booster infuses your water with over 72 electrically charged ionic minerals that counteract and neutralize damaging acids. So even if your diet’s not perfect, at least your water will be!

Advantages Alkalizing. pHion pH Booster contains 72 alkalizing minerals that boost your water up to a pH of 9.5 - over 500 times more alkaline than regular water with a pH of 7.0. Ionizing. pHion pH Booster infuses your water with a wealth of ionic minerals - and drinking water that is ionized, or electrically charged, may improve your cells’ ability to conduct electrochemical signals. Oxygenating. pHion pH Booster actually increases your water’s content of oxygen - which is necessary for fueling all human activity - because alkaline water is higher in oxygen than water with a pH of 7.0 or below. Tasteless and odorless. Best of all, pHion pH Booster provides all these benefits without affecting the taste or odor of your water. Long-lasting. Each pHion pH Booster kit contains 40 servings that will treat 20 gallons of water. Free Test Strips. Each pHion pH Booster kit also contains 5 specially designed pH test strips that will show you the pH of your water before and after using pHion pH Booster.

pHion Blue, Alkaline Minerals Neutralizes Strong Acids, A Perfect Blend of Ionic Minerals. Maintaining proper acid/alkaline balance - as measured by a pH reading between 6.75 and 7.25 - is one of the best things you can do for your health. Why? Because when the pH of your internal fluids falls below 6.75, it means your tissues are bathed in acid. And that can cause low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders. Plus, an acidic environment makes the perfect breeding ground for microforms, which can further compromise your health. Your body has one primary mechanism to neutralize damaging acids throughout your system: alkaline mineral buffers. Unfortunately, most of us don't get nearly the amount of minerals that we're supposed to from the diet. Make up for that lack with pHion Blue - the alkalizing mineral complex.

Advantages Almost instantly neutralizes harmful acids. pHion Blue contains all five primary alkaline minerals: calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron. Once these mineral buffers hit the system, they quickly neutralize excess acids. Replenishes mineral reserves. When taken on a daily basis, pHion Blue will go beyond just neutralizing the acids in your system. It will help you build up your mineral reserves, so you have a ready supply of minerals on-hand when needed. Features calcium from organic whey. The calcium in pHion Blue is derived from organic whey powder, making it perhaps the only organic-source calcium on the market. Formulated for optimal absorption. In addition to the five alkaline mineral buffers, pHion Blue includes the perfect amount of phosphorous, a co-nutrient of calcium, to ensure optimal calcium absorption. Easy to take. Best of all, pHion Blue comes in easy to swallow capsule form, so it’s easy to incorporate into your routine.
